Leicester Tigers outside-back Matías Moroni will leave Leicester Tigers this summer to join Newcastle Falcons.

Moroni made 36 appearances for Tigers in two seasons.

A starter in the Gallagher Premiership Final win on Saturday, Moroni has been capped 57 times by Argentina and is part of the Pumas squad which will host Scotland in a three-test series next month.

Discussing his time at the club, Moroni said: “I have enjoyed playing in the Premiership at Leicester, and it’s a competition which I think suits my game. I am thankful to everyone at Tigers and will take only good memories from my time there, and now I’m looking forward to this new challenge with the Falcons.

"I want to thank all the Tigers family for your support and making me feel at home - players, coaches, fans and staff.

"It has been an honour to defend this jersey and write another page in the history of the club."

Speaking about Moroni's time at Tigers, Head Coach Steve Borthwick said: "I want to thank Matías for his contribution to our club during this early stage in our journey and for what he has brought, on and off the field, to Tigers.

"He has worked tirelessly to carry the team forward during his time at our club and I, on behalf of everybody at Leicester Tigers, am grateful to Matías and his family for what they have done. I wish them well in the next chapter at Newcastle."
